Dina Manzo is officially a free woman – sort of. The former star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, is finally divorced from her husband, and sister Caroline’s brother-in-law, Tommy Manzo. Now Dina can brag about her younger, bi-coastal sugar daddy, David Cantin, 35.
According to Dina, 44, the divorce was finalized around two months ago, confirming that “saying goodbye was not an easy task.”
“Divorce is never easy,” Dina told Radar. “It was a very emotional divorce for me.”
Aren’t they all? But Dina is now very Zen about how things transpired.
“Of course it’s heartbreaking, but things happen the way they’re supposed to,” she said. “It was a long time coming. I think we just both had different ideas of what a marriage should be.”
Currently, Dina is living with her boyfriend, David, whom she met a year ago.
“We’re both heavily involved in pediatric cancer — [we met] through a project for that,” Dina explained. “I guess it’s been about a year now.”
So what’s the new guy like?
“He’s just the most loving man,” Dina gushed. “He’s really an awesome person and very caring. He treats my family so good, and he’s a great dad to his kids and I see that, how important that is.”
So will there be wedding bells in Dina’s future?
“I’m not even thinking that,” she said. “We’re just having a good time and building our life together. Literally as you know, two months out of divorce, I’m just focused on staying in a happy stage right now.”
Dina is very busy, living the bi-coastal life with her new man and developing her new skincare line, Glow by Dina, which she plans to launch on Mother’s Day.
